This is an indispensable publication on the life and work of the great Polish-Jewish-American artist-activist Arthur Szyk. A master of miniature painting and calligraphy, Szyk (1894-1951) brought his unmistakable style to subjects as diverse as biblical stories, literary classics, and political cartoons. This powerful, striking book is one for all art enthusiasts and collectors, students of World War II and Holocaust history, and the art world in general, as well as a vital tool for educators.
